“Kill him?”

COLLISTA Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: “Greetings Cheveyo. I am James Butler Hickok—do you know of our friends already here?”

“Yes—they have become part of the Carstairs gang.”

“WHAT?”

“It was Collista’s idea,” he replied, “She convinced Carstairs the she, Boomer, and Mac were on their side.”

“What can we do to help?”

“We’re on our way to clean Blufftown of all remaining gunfighters—join us?”

“First, we need to visit Danger Bay,” Hickok replied, “Meet us outside of Blufftown.”

“Very well,” Cheveyo replied, “You likely won’t find any answers there.”

“I suspect you are right,” Hickok agreed, “But—still…”

And with that, they rode off—towards Danger Bay Village and outside Blufftown.

Season 14—Adventure 7—COLLISTA—Episode 8—Scene 1… Danger Bay Village… The Posse stopped to talk with several old friends—Doctor DeWitt & Dora Ann McLean, Charles & Blanche Johnson, the Reverend Abe & Alice Simpson and Deputy US Marshal Deputy George & Susannah McLeod, who were gathered outside Johnson’s Supply and Doc McLean’s place.

Doctor DeWitt McLean (Yes GENTLE READER—the Great Grandfather of THAT Doctor McLean) spoke first, “Boomer, Mac, and Daisy are now allied with the gunslingers—thanks to Collista McIntyre!”

With varying degrees of anger, the others agreed that Collie McIntyre had taken their friends down the road to perdition.

“No sense in dwelling upon that which makes no sense,” Chris about summed-up what the others were thinking, “We’d best get on our way and see what awaits us in Blufftown.”

“I’m really having a problem believing this,” Linda added, “I know my cousin—he just wouldn’t…”

“And I’ve known Boomer, Collie and Mac, longer than anybody here,” Sarah added, “And I don’t believe it.”

As they rode the long, winding road up to the top of the bluff each was consumed by what seemed to be the truth about their friends—conversations stopped, leaving each alone in their thoughts.

Episode 8—Scene 2… Moosehead City… Collista & Company arrived in Moosehead City, “Send a couple of your men to the Depot, Bill. We don’t want anyone leaving—or arriving.”

“For how long, Collista?”

“As long as we’re here,” she replied, “We also send as many men as needed to take-over the sheriff’s office, maybe you should supervise.”

“Kill him?”

“Yes.”

To be—CONTINUED…
